CPR + AED Save at Sports Complex

From MLive:

Quick action by two physicians and a park manager, and the presence of an automated external defibrillator, saved the life of a woman who was in cardiac arrest Sunday afternoon at the Art Van Sports Complex, according to the Plainfield Fire Department.

Before fire personnel arrived and during the 911 call, two medical doctors who were guests to events at the park helped the woman. The park manager, Esther Kuzma, retrieved a defibrillator that was at the complex. The two doctors, whose names are unknown, did CPR on the woman and used the defibrillator to give one shock to the patient.

Within minutes, the woman was conscious and able to respond to questions from one of the doctors.
